The Flipping 50 Show

If you know what really causes cancer you can make better daily choices to prevent it or prevent recurrence.  My guest today overcame her own cancer 100% naturally. She’s not the only one. Knowing we each have cancerous cells in our bodies that do or don’t express based on our epigenetics or lifestyle choices, can empower us to learn and then choose more wisely. In the first few minutes of this episode you will learn something that will blow your mind. Think of it as what you wish you’d always known about lab testing. Especially if you’re someone who has always been “normal”...

If you’ve looked in the mirror lately and you see something that makes you wonder about surgery or botox and that is just not you, but you’d love a natural facelift with no negative side effects, this is for you.

How to Lose Weight for Active Women Over 40: Women’s Exercise Nutrition show art How to Lose Weight for Active Women Over 40: Women’s Exercise Nutrition

The Flipping 50 Show

Many women want to lose weight. To lose weight for active women over 40, they also don’t want performance to deteriorate. There are a few things to consider. First, it’s not the eat less, exercise more dogma that will get you what you really want.  Most women want energy, tone and definition, and strength for now and later. Better blood sugar control that supports reductions in belly fat and overall insulin sensitivity.  Am I right? But eating less and exercising more - if successful at all during menopause and post - will generally cause the opposite. Less energy, worse mood,...

5 Books I Loved in 2023 | Gift Ideas  show art 5 Books I Loved in 2023 | Gift Ideas

The Flipping 50 Show

Fair warning: this 5 books I loved in 2023 episode will read a little like a book review. It’s a great gift guide but perhaps the biggest take-away for us all is in the review of titles. I won’t make you wait. I’m going to share them all in the beginning. The titles are like trends on skinny jeans or cropped tops and high-waisted tights. I didn’t love either of those. With these I’m less judgmental but certainly curious. This says a lot about what sells today. Because of course, don’t judge a book by it’s cover… but we do. The image, the title, the subtitle all matter a great...

What Is BioHacking? | Women’s Health  show art What Is BioHacking? | Women’s Health

The Flipping 50 Show

Before I go further you should know, I’ve despised the word “hacking” for a long time. For me it seemed like code for shortcut, cheat, and quick fix. And a decade ago I think that was true. But I know better and the biohacking we’re talking about here is very different. It’s not cheating the system but rather getting a bonus. If you lift weights and can’t lift heavy, the use of a whole body vibration tool may give you a bonus benefit of bone density you can’t get otherwise. If you can lift heavy, I for one am using it for the icing on the cake it can be.  Biohacking is a...

The Flipping 50 Show

If you’ve experienced this… I want you to to know the #1 reason you’re not getting results from my 40 years experience, and most of all from the most recent comments, DMs and group conversations we have. Said 100% with respect to us all… but we have failed to commit to any one. While we’re complaining about the abundance of overwhelming and often conflicting information, we fail to realize it’s us who continues to let it in.  Not saying that we should stop trying to learn or gain knowledge. You know I share summits with you from time to time. I share experts with you right...

More Episodes

Which hormones matter most for your health during and after menopause? I’m asked far too often about unique individual hormones. This week it was testosterone and DHEA. Both I wrote about in You Still Got It, Girl! Yet, you don’t want to just look at individual hormones without looking at the whole picture of your signs, symptoms, basically your subjective measures and your objective measures of muscle mass, bone density, strength changes, sleep number (to some extent) and even Heart Rate Variability.

I brought the hormone mistress (she doesn’t know I’m calling her that!) on this episode and we talk about something spontaneously that I hadn’t intended to ask but decided I needed to and that was about her concern for the vast array of information coming from Google and social media influencers who don’t necessarily stay in their scope and who are most concerned with the attention and followers than the accuracy of information.
